Whole Wheat Flour- whole grains (like whole wheat) are full of nutrients that are great for your dog, such as fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Antioxidants are also found in whole wheat.
Carrots - besides carrots being an excellent source of vitamin A, did you know they also contain antioxidants, dietary fiber, and minerals?
Egg - eggs are simply the binder for the ingredients.
Banana - dogs love bananas! For a healthy, fat-free, low-calorie snack, bananas are a splendid choice. Besides being healthy for your dog, they're low in cholesterol and packed with nutrients.
Baking Powder - using a small amount of baking powder as a leavening agent in dog muffins or pupcakes is just fine for your dog. You don’t want to use it in large amounts. However, if you prefer not to leave the baking powder out, you can substitute baking powder for yogurt.
Cinnamon - I love using cinnamon in dog muffins, pupcakes and even dog treat recipes! It makes the recipe not only smell great, but has many health benefits for dogs.

🦮 Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Other Types of Carrots?
You don't have to stick with the traditional carrots in dog treat recipes. Go ahead and try another color of carrot for these dog cupcakes to make them even more fun. Besides orange, carrots come in yellow, red, white, and purple too! Substitute or add any of these other colors of carrots for variety.
Can I use this Recipe to make Dog Cupcakes or Dog Cakes?
Using this dog treat recipe, you can make muffins or a cake. You can make this into a cake by pouring the batter into lightly greased cake pans or loaf pans instead of muffin tins. Start with the suggested baking time, then check every few minutes to see if it’s done.
How Much should I Feed my Dog?
Treats should be limited the amount your dog can eat at one time and their size. I give my small dog, Ruby, a 20 lb Goldendoodle a half a muffin a day. My Labrador Retriever Callie gets a whole muffin (usually split in half).
